The Journey of the Mora Course.

The trail team examines every inch of the Mora Course.

Considering that Mother Nature has been stingy and unreliable with natural snowfall over the past several years, the trail team recognized the need to have a trail system that is not dependent on waiting to see what Ma Nature will do. So the team went to work this summer and meticulously cleared, trimmed, and expanded the network of trails at the Nordic Center.

While we always hope that there will be ample snow to hold the race on the legacy course, the trail team has fulfilled the vision of having an equally fun and challenging course, through the woods with lots of hills and turns, right here in Mora.

With the purchase of snow-making equipment a couple of years ago, and an army of farmer volunteers, the Mora Course is not only a reliable option, it is a superb trail system. Never again, will the Vasaloppet be held on Knife Lake as a back-up plan for low snow years.

Today, the Mora course is a 17km loop, and that loop continues to grow and expand. High five to the trail team who have made this vision a reality.
